Year 2 Day 263: Father's Day 2010
Today was Matt's first proper Father's Day. I had gotten him a card last year when Ryan was still "bunny" and had yet to make his appearance, but this year was definitely more special because he was actually here to share it with Matt. You can absolutely tell when they're together that Ryan just adores his Daddy!
We had our usual, delicious Sunday tea at Emma's and Ryan went to town. His choices this time included broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, roast potato, and Yorkshire pudding. He had tastes of everything and surprisingly studied his broccoli carefully before putting it into his mouth each time. I also had given him half my Yorkie -- which was more than generous of me -- and he ate half of it! Of course we finished off with a Frube yogurt and there's an obvious score.
Matt and I are really pleased with how he is doing with Baby-Led Weaning. He isn't quite purposefully consuming everything, but he is more intrigued by what everything is, and that's all we can ask. I think the best bit is that not only is Ryan having a bit of fun with the experience, but Matt and myself are as well.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
